I had an opportunity to sit down with Jason Weeks, Executive Director of the Cambridge Arts Council, to hear about some of the amazing arts happening currently and in the future in our fair city. Take a listen the the interview.

Here are just a few highlights:

  • FLOW.Steam that vents out from the laundry room of an apartment building will be transformed into magical clouds lit-up with color. A mural painted right on the roadway of Windsor Street will celebrate the Port. Hip-hop and modern dancers will perform on outdoor basketball courts. A free sound-production / podcast and life skills training studio will be launched for young adults.These are just a few of the 11 cultural projects coming to Cambridge’s Port neighborhood (previously known as Area Four) as part of Cambridge Arts’ FLOW programming
  • In:Accessible at Gallery 344. This exhibition at Cambridge Arts’ Gallery 344 through May 31 showcases projects created by students of NuVu Studio, a Central Square school where teens design and build solutions to real-world problems—like helping a teen in a wheelchair play basketball, creating a device to help a boy with muscular dystrophy raise his hand in class, or helping a veteran who’s lost arms continue to practice archery.
  • Cambridge River Festival.On June 2, 2018, Cambridge Arts will welcome 150,000 plus festival goers to the East Cambridge waterfront for an exuberant celebration of the arts. Occurring along DCR Cambridge Parkway and in Lechmere Canal Park, the festival will feature staged and roving performances, hands-­on art-making and more than a hundred artists and food vendors with work for sale. The Cambridge Arts River Festival is FREE and open to all!
